Atlantic Weekly at City Market, June 22



Saturday, June 22, 2013

8 am to 12 pm (edt)


Atlantic Weekly returns to the Charlottesville City Market this Saturday, June 22, for its regular fourth Saturday of the month broadcast.   There will be live music from Red Sammy at 9 am, and Gina Sobel and members of the Mighty Fine will stop by around 11.  Soundboard host Lewis Reining will also chat with some of the vendors.  And we will have some giveaways from Merci, Margot Cupcakes and Red Wing Roots Music Festival.

Fiddler Nate Leath and members of LEATHal Matter will also stop by to play LIVE.

Nate Leath is one of the new bright lights illuminating the contemporary fiddle universe. He tells a story with every note he plays. I look forward to hearing many wonderful things from Nate in the future - he's a fiddle player who's got something substantial to say and I for one will be listening. –– David Grisman

Red Sammy is Baltimore singer/songwriter, Adam Trice. The band name is a reference to Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). The style of music embraces the beauty in imperfection: life, work, hard work, disappointment, love and loss are all themes entwined in his songs.

Current music and arrangements are provided by Red Sammy’s ensemble: John “Chesapeake” Decker (resonator guitar), Greg Humphreys (bass, electric guitar, mandolin), and Tony Calato (drums).  The band is currently touring behind its latest release, These Poems With Kerosene.  The band will be performing at the Magnolia House in Charlottesville the previous evening.

Gina Sobel and the Mighty Fine walk the line between jazz, funk and rock n roll with soulful vocals, hot solos and funky grooves. The band is made up of Gina Sobel - flute, sax, vocals; Dave French - guitar, vocals Brett Jones, guitar; and Simon Evans - bass; Pat Hayes - drums.  They will be recording a live album that same night at the Southern Cafe & Music Hall, when they open for LEATHal Matter.

This month our Soundboard crew will chat with Matt Baer of the Market Central Foundation, as well as a few Charlottesville City Market vendors, including:

  • James Rucker of Pantheon Ice Pop Shop
  • Roded and Patricia Anderson of Cricket's Baked Goods & Catering
  • Jewelry and metal work artist Jeff Miller
